And before the first match in that form guide, before the FGR game on the 2nd of Feb we were 2nd in the form table (behind Mansfield), 2nd in the league (behind Cambridge) but with five games in hand and had won 9 out of 11 home games.Oh shit we're the worst team right now form wise!
Our journey to non-league football has begun..

We seem to get into a solid promotion position only to collapse on a fairly regular basis, so much so that the old conspiracy theory about John Nixon not wanting us to go up as he'll lose his place on the EFL board has surfaced on twitter again. It's like we have these tweets waiting and ready to go when the inevitable post-Christmas collapse comes. Don't think I've ever seen a collapse quite like this one though, this is intense levels of bottling promotion.
Hmmmm, I seem to remember a lot of 1-0s over the years. There definitely have been a fair few goals in some of the games, but without checking I'd wager that 1-0 is the most commonly re-occuring scoreline by a long way.View attachment 13916
A match between two teams that are both out of good form.
Grimsby at near base of current form table and home form while FGR have dropped down main and away tables.
FGR travel to Grimsby with a dodgy defensive line-up, three of their back line were missing in last game.
Therefore this could be the first win in a Grimsby revival.
Whatever result there will undoubtedly be goals a-plenty, which is usual with these two long established opponents.
The fact that you've used the phrase "Grimsby would fancy their chances" in a positive context and not in relation to our imminent relegation shows just how much you're overestimating the optimism in the Grimsby camp right now.Hopefully one or two of our injured defenders are back, or at the very least Bailey Cargill passes any concussion tests, as even Grimsby would fancy their chances of bagging a few against a defence containing 3 right backs and a second year scholar.
I am so disillusioned with my 'Crock of Shit' I may not even bother with ifollow for this game.
The depression that comes over my family and I watching this current team is damaging our health.
Team in this instance being rouge cart horses romping around a field chasing shadows; not the usual definition which is "a group of individuals (human or non-human) working together to achieve their goal."
Two in form teams meet at Valley Parade on Saturday. Bolton 6 wins on the bounce, Bradford City 5 wins on the bounce.
We would have been expecting a crowd of about 20,000 in normal times for this one, without a doubt.
I would imagine both teams and supporters would be happy with a point from this.
